New 5 star review (at Amazon UK):Terry Pratchett fans, read on...
This fantasy reminded me very much (in style, not plot) of Terry Pratchett's earliest Discworld novels, The Colour Of Magic and The Light Fantastic, and if you enjoyed these you should definitely try Gaspar the Thief. At first I was unsure about the episodic nature of the book's structure, but although each chapter is a self-contained adventure, the relationships between the characters build throughout the book and by the end of chapter 3 I was completely engaged. The writing style helps create the atmosphere of a medieval or Middle-Earth environment and if orcs don't appear - well you feel they could at any moment. The adventures of Gaspar and his travelling companions become more complex as the book unfolds and there are plenty of battles along the way. I recommend this book to fantasy-lovers.
